M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Literary synopsis

Observations on life, reissued from the author's regular newspaper columns, in semi-fictionalized accounts. Apupata is a small prose in which people, foods, colors, lights, entertainment, memories and signs are packed in compact portions. Väisänen writes about a small village in south-west of France, in the perspective of miniature prose, impressionistic essays and genre painting (or petit genre), where the small things and the detailed findings will grow into a complete way of life expression. Still, Finnish culture and memories of barracks from Oulu area come along.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Väisänen deals with words like brush strokes, in a very sentimental way in which rhythm is very important.
